    On eBay there is a thing called "Sniper" that puts in the next higher bid automatically. This is quite common. You should always put the highest dollar amount that you are willing to pay when you bid. That way, if you lose, it will be because the price went too high and not because someone else was sitting there waiting for the auction to end.

    That seems to be the way it happens, I don't know how many times that has occurred to me, yes very frustrating.

    disappointed. I discovered his mags late and only have 5. Since he left QH I am on a quest to buy whatever I can find. Lesson learned....I can't believe someone did that. I might have to consider it too. I sat here 2 hours waiting ofr other bids so I could go up. I have only bid on Ebay about 20 times. Oh well.
    I have some, but I to got them late. I think I have the years before he left.
    Send me a pm if you would like me to check if I have ones you don't have.

    Thats the way it goes with Ebay......I always put a proxy bid in for the highest I want to go.
